Inaugural Detroit Women's half (or one big, fun race)
Posted May 03 2013 5:22pm
Hello! I'm alive! I survived last semester. I took my last final last night and I was happy to say "adios" to chem equations. Anyway, now I finally have some time to post..and play catch up on blogs.
I'll have to play catch up on life later (because you know, I've been doing realllllllyyy exciting things...er, maybe not). Today's post is full of exciting news.
There's a women only (sorry fellas) half marathon and 5k coming to Detroit! It's taking place on September 22 on Belle Isle. Guess who's going to be a race ambassador?! Me! I couldn't be more excited. Here's why
1. I love Belle Isle. So pretty and full of Detroit history. Anything by the water is also a win.
2. Women only? I know some people scoff at that, but I think it sounds like having a blast with a bunch of gal pals without having to worry about men stinking up the place. Just kidding ;) But, I DO think it's a good way to round up some friends for a fun, healthy time. Especially if they aren't that "into" running. It takes some pressure off and lets you just have fun! (Or it can be super competitive because you're just racing other ladies. Totally can go either way.)
3. This seems like a perfect excuse for me to dress up in a tutu, yet again. Maybe a tiara too? And pink. Clearly I love all those things.
